Contego uses a modern “SaaS” (Software as a Service) information infrastructure designed to make best use of the latest web technology and provide you with a very user friendly experience.
Our rules-based Contego system makes a holistic assessment of all aspects of a transaction to give a real-time “Red, Amber or Green” recommendation backed by detailed alerts and data. We don’t just look at one or two aspects of a transaction but harness the power of some great existing systems provided by our partners and then add our own unique intelligence to provide a single powerful system on a simple cost-effective transaction pricing model. Return of investment can be immediate, as can improved detection rates.
The building blocks of the Contego database are:
- Partner with the best providers of data in key areas, such as credit ratings, identity and address checks
- Scour the web for Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and for small niche players to fill out our database
- Integrate key intelligence from Law Enforcement Agencies
- And then add details of confirmed and suspected fraud from our customers
Sitting on top of our data is a set of over 300 rules that allow us to assemble customised checks for each customer to meet their risk, compliance and affordability criteria.
Finally, we support Law Enforcement Agencies wherever we can, including automated reporting of fraudulent transactions.
